Midweek Recap Dec 26th and Weekend Preview Dec 30th

Not much going on but a good showing by Son. I'm writing this before Crystal Palace match but doubt it changes things.

Son Heung Min -- Started and despite a bit of inconsistency in transition, Tottenham were working well in attack and Son was a big part. First he made a good run into the box and perfect cross to assist Kane's second. He also should have gotten a PK call, but then scored himself on a direct run and shoot. He technically assisted Alli's goal though he didn't do much, but whatever undue credit he got was earned later when he worked the ball back and up the pitch to start the attack for an eventual goal. Not all great but a very good match after some just ok showings. If he's fit, he should start again. Or if not Saturday, on Tuesday.

Ki Sung Yueng -- Out with calf injury still. It remains to be seen if he's hurt or waiting out a potential transfer but man things looked bad albeit vs a good Liverpool side. West Ham makes some sense, with London probably being more amenable to Ki's family and need for a player of Ki's situation. And it would bode well for a continued career in Europe post WC. But at this point, seems a bit testing out the waters for Ki rather than concrete interest. As a result, I'd expect him to play if fit, and possibly start instead of some poor CM play from alternates.

Lee Seung Woo -- I'd guess he'll be on the bench.

Lee Chung Yong -- I'm assuming he was an unused sub or not even in the squad Thursday.
